. >> it is something that i don't understand. people spoke about hillary clinton when she was running for office and when she was first lady. one of the things that seems to be a little bit different here with regard to people talking about the high school coach that you talked about referred to the first lady as michelle fat butt obama. and what conservative radio host rush limbaugh has referred to her on one more than one occasion as michelle my butt obama. what we believe is beautiful or not beautiful just because certainly people feel that a lot of what black women look is not something that they consider is beauty, and in the african-american community we see all of us as beautiful regardless of how we look, and its disconcerting that it's okay to say these things about the first lady of the united states. who by the way she's not over weight. look at the pieces written by my colleagues. >> jennifer: she's totally beautiful. she's not the anorexic stick that fashion magazines tout as ideal, due do not think that it makes her a better and powerful role model for young women. >> absolutely. o

for president obama and a former special assistant for national security affairs under president clinton. always a pleasure. good evening. >> hello john. >> john: were you surprised so much of today's hearing was used to essentially re-litigate the early stages of the bush war on terror from waterboarding and other forms of torture to the claims made famous by dick cheney that iraq had some murky involvement with 9-11? >> i confess i was surprised that mohammed atta made a cameo appearance. john brennan is the fifth c.i.a. nominee to come before the committee over the past 12 years. plenty of opportunity to litigate or to write and rewrite history. i think it is -- an indication of the trench warfare that still exists on capitol hill. >> john: i agree. after mr. petraeus, i was glad that nobody asked if he had a girlfriend. mr. brennan was executive director of the c.i.a. from 2002 to 2006. i know you know him. is it credible, as mr. brennan claimed, he had no involvement with the enhancement interrogation program? >> he would not have had any direct involvement in the program. obviously, as you

whew, disastrous, not only did clinton clean his clock but so did george w. bush and ronald reagan. he preserved less land for public use than george w. bush. of course, obama likes to break bush's record and go further right, and he did in this case as well and opened up a tremendous amount of land to drill on. i want to bring in a couple of experts, michael shure our political correspondent, and then mark flogl with greenpeace research unit. thank you for joining us. i want to ask you about sally jewel's record. it seems to me that it's a mixed bag. she worked for an oil company and then worked as as a banker, which is a prerequisite if you work in the obama administration. she seems like a conservation conservationist. >> she worked for mobile 30 years ago. that was an entry level position. the people she'll deal with in her new position if she's confirmed is a much different kettle of fish. she'll come under pressure to open up public land for oil coal all the fossil fuel industries. >> cenk: do we have an indication of how she's going to react to that? are you in favor or oppose t
